Happy Woden's Day, fellow watchers and watcherettes!ORIGINAL SOLD
It's been a long time since I've asked you for your help, but finances have been terribly tight as of late and getting worse. Thus, I've taken some time from my schedule of pages and commissions, to do a bit of extra work on one of my warm-ups in the hope that someone might want to purchase this original. I am selling this full-color, 8"x5" inches piece for $80 USD
(which is considerably less than I usually charge). I know money is tight everywhere, but this is a good opportunity to get some artwork from me at a special price.
As for the image itself, I heard somewhere once that every artist should draw the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
at least once in his career. I couldn't agree more!
These characters are so iconic that they can be rendered a thousand times in a million different styles and still look good every time. I chose to depict the cartoon version of the pizza-eating ninjas, mostly because that's the iteration I have the fondest memories of; and April
wasn't bad at all in that series!
My choosing Raphael
as the favored half-shell warrior for this illustration has to do with the whole mood I wanted to give the scene. I always loved Michelangelo
more; but if you're going to face a band of Foot-Clan, katana-wielding soldiers from Shredder
, Raph is the way to go.
I hope you enjoy this bit of 80s nostalgia and send me a note if you're interested in getting the original hanging on your wall!
See you all soon!
PS.. Some of my commissioners have had issues receiving their pieces because of the crappy P.O service here in my country; however, I've found a better service that delivers them without a hitch and in record time, so rest assured you'll get the original safe and sound.
